Learn English with Game of Thrones – RealLife English | FOTOTECA LEARNENGLISH | Scoop.it
So, as a huge Game of Thrones geek myself–no really, I’ve read all the books, watched every episode, and even have a House Targaryan t-shirt–I thought it would be a wonderful idea to create a lesson to help you better understand the show. Especially since Season 6 has just started.

Even if you don’t watch Game of Thrones, yet, or you have only seen it dubbed, this guide will help you to start enjoying it in its native language.

400 Times William Shakespeare Totally Blew Our Minds

400 Times William Shakespeare Totally Blew Our Minds | FOTOTECA LEARNENGLISH | Scoop.it
The Bard's been dead 400 years, and he's still killing it.

GoogleLitTrips Reading List's curator insight, April 28, 9:30 AM
28 April 2016

I'll let the Bard speak for himself and limit my commentary to:
1. He spoke for all of us

2. He touched on a few subjects you might want to preview before sharing with students

3. Best book on Shakespeare in my mind is Bill Bryson's Shakespeare: The World as Stage an intriguing collection of stories about what we know and don't really know about Shakespeare.

And (I'm so excited) Bill Bryson was recently announced as being one of next year's speakers at the Oakland Speakers Series. Whoo hoo!

Another semi-off the subject bit of Shakespeariana.
Here in California earthquake country, the local Shakespeare outdoor Shakespeare theatre is lovingly referred to as 
Cal Shakes! (and it does!)

Dr. Doris Molero's curator insight, April 18, 2015 5:17 PM

 

MY  BLACKBERRY IS NOT WORKING.

– I bought something from you last week, and I'm very disappointed.

– Oh yeah? What's the problem?

– Yeah, well, my blackberry is not working.

[laughter, applause]

– What's the matter, it run out of juice?

[laughter]

– No, no, it's completely frozen!

[knocking on table]

– Oh, yeah, I can see that.

I tell you what: let's try it on orange.

[laughter]

– That's got a few black spots, you see...

– Oh, dear, yes. Sorry about that.

– Well, is there anything I can do to get my blackberry working?

– Well, could be an application issue.

Where'd you store that Blackberry?

– Well, it was on my desktop.

– Well, you could try using a mouse to drag the blackberry to the trash.

[laughter]

Then after you've done that, you might wanna launch the blackberry from the desktop.

[laughter]

– Well, I've already tried that a few times.I mean, all it did was mess up windows.

[laughter]

– [clears throat] Well, it might be worth waiting a couple of weeks.

They've got the latest blackberries coming in then.

– Well, could you give me a date?

– Certainly.

[laughter]

– Let me put that date in my diary.

[laughter]

 

– Anything else I can help you with?

– Yes, yes. I've also got a problem, to be honest,with my apple.

[laughter]

– Oh, dear, oh, dear. That is an old apple, isn't it?

– Yeah.

– When'd you buy that?

– Last week.

– Last week? They've brought out two new apples since then!

[laughter]

What's the problem with it?

– Well, I tried to put my dongle in it... [laughter] and it won't fit.

– Oh, yeah. [laughter]

And how big's your dongle?

– Well, I don't know much about these things,but my wife's seen a few dongles in her time...[laughter]

and she says a little bit on the small side. [laughter]

– Well, I'm afraid there's not a lot I can do about that.Tell you what: let me try booting it. [glass shatters]

Now it's crashed.

[laughter, applause]

 

Anything else I can help you with?

– Well, funnily enough, yes. My grandson's birthday's soon. 

– Oh, yeah.

– Now, he's already got an apple and a blackberry. I mean, have you got anything else that he might just like?

– Well, we're doing a special offer on these.I mean, I can't make head or tail of them, but the kids seem to like them.

– Oh yeah?

– "Eggs box," £3.60.

[laughter, applause]
